ntsb managing director has been following this story with us since the start and he is back now with this latest development. peter, i want to you to put your ntsb hat back on for a second here. if you find out that they knew that they had 10 batteries that had problems, that japanese airline told them they had to replace 10 batteries did they do something wrong by not disclosing it or by not addressing the problem right there? >> well here's the issue. it is not just 10 batteries. that is 10 batteries from one of the airlines the second airline using the japanese airline, using the dreamliner also had problems. they were not required to turn these events over to the regulator in japan or in the u.s. we have pages of regulations. this was seen as kind of a minor or normal maintenance issue. the real question is, both airliners reported their problems to boeing. they said we had to change out, in one case 10 batteries. in another case we don't know how many. the question is, whether boeing was connecting the dots. whether they saw that there was a problem brewing with these batte

. clearly that's not happening today. with regard to the incident yet. ntsb tells me they expect to have an update on that investigation later today. we were talking with airlines earlier today and they said, listen, dreamliner flights have continued as scheduled. we know there's an issue with the one that was just about to take off from boston. take a look at the number of issues we've seen with the dreamliner over the last month of remember, it was just at the beginning of november that united did the first domestic flight for the dreamliner. highly regarded flight, got a lot of attention. a month later an emergency landing in new orleans after reporting mechanical problems. a few days after that, cutr air had to ground 787 jets due to what they say was a faulty generator. united grounding four due to an electrical planl panel and a fire in boston. there's a lot of headline risk right now. >> they have confirmed it is a 787. i don't know if we still have that live shot available but let's put it up while we talk about this. there you go, logan airport. what do they have to do? they hav
2011. now some question how safe is the 787. >> it is something the ntsb will take a very careful look at. if you're looking at things like the brakes, boeing did revamped its software system in november. it would be troubling if it turns out to be a similar issue, because that was a challenging fix. >> going can at least draw comfort from one of the words of their biggest customers. qatar airways and dismissed the issue as easy problems. there are still plenty of fans. bbc news, new york. >> tonight, the white house has confirmed that labor secretary bill so this -- hilda solis is resigning. this at the time that president obama has picked jack lew to replace tim geithner as treasury secretary. whoever runs the jaret -- the treasury has a critical job. so far, 2013 has been marked by fighting over the fiscal could. but americans say they are looking for solutions, decisions. we have the ceo of accounting giant duch joining me from -- deloit joining me from new york. what would your message be to the new secretary, jack lew? >> my message to jack, as well as what novartis said to the p

, is anybody responding to this? >> the n.t.s.b. sent an investigator to japan to work with their officials. remember the ntsb already opened an investigation following the 787 battery fire you mentioned in boston last week. that battery was in the back of the plane. the one that caused the emergency landing in japan was more in front of the dream liner but all of this will be looked at after a comprehensive review of the electrical system. that review was announced last friday. at the time they expressed confidence in the 787 but now, they are apologizing to customers for cancelled flights due to the voluntary grounding of their dream liner. they announced today they did some safety checks and all of their planes are in service. >> clearly, more bad news for boeing. what is the company saying? >> they are very tight-lipped. they released a one line statement they are aware of the issue and working with the airline. they and many aviation experts say, these are teething issue that happens to every new plane. no one has been hurt or killed. last year was the safest year ever in the aviation
from in the ntsb's latest update on the 787 investigation is it looks like the planes will not fly anytime soon. they don't know what caused two batteries to overheat, leading to a fire and emergency landing and the grounding of the fleet of 50 dreamliners in service. they're looking at the battery charger and the electrical system, and so far there's been no smoking gun. >> this is not something we're expecting will be solved overnight. there's a lot of technical work and a lot of complex work to understand. >> i also got word from a source inside boeing that the ntsb is looking at another fire in tucson in 2006 that happened on a plane -- it was during a test when the lithium ion battery exploded and burst into play. boeing says the test was done wrong. the worker who set it up says it was correct, and the batteries were dangerous. he was fired and sued and lost his case. now the feds are reexamining the whole incident. meantime, boeing continues to assemble dreamliners in seattle and south carolina. the problem is what to do with the planes when they're finished. the company did
that the ntsb investigation is focused on. christine romans with a look on that. richard quest in davos to explain a little about that as well. christine, you start with me. >> we can see the picture of this charred battery on a boston plane. the ntsb, giving us an up close and personal look at the battery involved. no battery should look like this. the ntsb trying to get to the bottom of an engineering mystery. remember, the faa allowed boeing to use lithium ion batteries. the light fuel-efficient plane is supposed to save airlines a ton of money on long-haul flights. no dreamliners in the air right now. boeing says we're working this issue tirelessly in cooperation with customers and the appropriate regulatory and investigative authorities. it is still a mystery. the ntsb laying out this charred battery,ingi reporters what they are digging into. >> richard quest is in davos. beautiful behind you. tell us about the presser? pretty remarkable. battery charred, on the table. >> oh. the pictures are absolutely remarkable of what the battery looked like and not only that but also the damag
of events a few years ago prompted the ntsb to focus on medical helicopters specifically and medical planes. the pressure to quickly respond in various conditions at night, in foul weather, they make those operations inherently dangerous. the safety board made 19 recommendations, including better pilot training, especially for inclement weather, nine vision systems, flight data recorders with regular reviews of the data. both aircraft yesterday were just a few years old each and we know that the pilot in the fatal crash in iowa did have access to height vision goggles and newer technology but did not have a flight data recorder, wolf. >> what do we know about the companies that operated these hol copterses? >> these were two large nationwide air medical operations. the first one, air methods corporation, that's the one involved in the oklahoma crash yesterday, that has some 300 aircraft. the company involved in the iowa crash, medtran, has about 60. we've reached out to both companies but have not heard back yet. the ffa and ntsb are investigating both of these incidents. the one involved i

leventhal is live at the scene at pier 11. >> reporter: we can confirm that n.t.s.b. go team is on that ferry boat, assisting the u.s. coast guard into the investigation what caused this ship. 140 foot ferry boat to slam into pier 11 after 8:40 a.m. injuring 57 people, as you mentioned two of them critical, 9 the serious and 17 reported in guarded conditions. many of the folks were standing up as this boat came in close to shore getting ready to get off when it hit and they were thrown forward. some downstairs, others into windows, breaking glass, many of them were cut, many suffered bruises, their heads and next were injured and backs as well. even one woman sitting down was hurt. >> i was sitting down upstairs towards the back. i was like half asleep and all of a sudden there was this loud bang and my face catapulted into the seat in front of me and my knee must have also hit the seat. >> reporter: you can see where the front of the boat hit, the corner of what we believe of a dock out here and ripped a hole and shredded the right side of that vessel, from the inside the c

ion batteries used on its 787 dreamliner jets. the ntsb made the request after recently learning of incidents that occurred before the battery fire on an al nippon airways jet at boston's logan airport on january 7. >>> and it replaced batteries on 787 jets ten times after they felt it charged improperly or showed other problems and told boeing about the swaps. the airline has replaced batteries on its dreamliners. boeing reports four-kwourth earnings at 7:30 eastern to see. we'll be talking about this. mr. lebow will have the inside track. >> yes, excited for that. >>> a mixed victory for samsung electronics. this after a u.s. federal court rejected apple's bid to raise $1 billion damages paid by samsung in a patent infringement case. u.s. district court judge lucy coe said samsung did violate several of apple's patents in smartphone and tablet products but said it wasn't willful and threw out the request to hike damages on samsung. she also denied samsung's request for a new trial. this just continues to go back and forth between the companies. >> yeah. that's going to run, isn
in question. for the latest on this ntsb request, let's go to dan springer. have they np >> no, they haven't. they have done the first level of investigation haven't been able to pinpoint the exact problems so going to a deeper level. as mentioned is not hurting the bottom line yet. just mentioned the company took in $81.7 billion in revenue, that is a record last year. it is not hurting the bottom line yet. the battery issues with the 787 did not sneak up on boeing but more details. replacing 10 of the lithium-ion batteries since may. half of them were due to low voltage. it is much higher as reported by source. reporting 100 batteries had to be replaced but not all of them suffered a failure. melissa: not confirm the number for me, but downplayed the whole issue saying batteries are replaceable unit on airplanes in the replace five or six per day. the company issued a statement saying we have not seen 787 battery replacements occurring as a result of a safety concern. the batteries are being returned because of our robust protection scheme shows no battery deeply discharged or improperly
the flood of lawsuits that followed. information the ntsb was investigating that crash and this one as well. that's standard procedure. a go team arrived this afternoon. they are preparing to gather what they are calling perishable evidence. >> we are just here to collect information right now. we are not here to conduct analysis. we are not here to speculate. we are not here to determine the probable cause. we're here to find out what happened so that we can prevent it from happening again. >> and the ntsb says it will interview crew members tomorrow and begin collecting, gathering evidence to try and determine the cause of this crash, shep. >> shepard: rick leventhal in lower manhattan where the accident happened this morning and just hours later just across the east river, another new york city disaster unfolded when a 200-foot tall crane collapsed in queens. that crane went down neither iconic pepsi sign that you can see from manhattan. the fire department claims today's collapse trapped several workers. seven are now hurt. three of them reported in serious condition. crane collapses. a
with the latest on this. phil? >> and, bill, got two pieces of news, the first one being that the ntsb completed an update with reporters regarding the ntsb investigation. here's a couple of notes, first of all, they say the battery short circuited and caught on fire but an important point. they are still trying to determine exactly why these batteries caught on fire. the bottom line, this was so serious they had to ground these planes. >> this is an unprecedented event. we are very concerned. as i mentioned in the very beginning, we do not expect to see fire events on board aircrafts. this is a very serious air safety concern the faa has taken. very serious action. >> and regarding those lithium ion batteries, today we spoke with a former worker and whistleblower. this is a supplier to boeing with the 787 dreamliners. they make the charger for the lithium ion batteries. he said he warned his superiors that the batteries were not safe and said the company ignored his warning. just a few minutes ago he described what happened when he saw one of these lithium ion batteries exemployed proceed. >>
there are things we don't know about yet. for example, after the event in boston last week immediately the ntsb had a fairly serious investigation involving the japanese. they had some inkling there was a problem with the battery system. what happened in japan later sealed the deal as far as a much more serious approach to this. melissa: as a passenger this makes me very concerned about a 787. do you think they will get the confidence back for flyers if they straighten out all the problems? how would you go about doing that. >> i think the key is team work. when you have problems in an aircraft like this or an existing model, the certifying organization faa, ntsb and others including the japanese who will work together on a solution. if that solution is one actually effective, if they're very transparent with what they're doing and how they're doing it i think public confidence will return. melissa: that sound like a long process. how long do you think these planes will be on the ground? >> hard to say. until they understand exactly what happened and until they understand what role if any the batte
to arrive there today to assess the situation. >>> the ntsb is in new york this morning, investigating a ferry accident, which seriously injured 11 people. the packed commuter ferry was coming in from new jersey when it slammed into a dock in lower manhattan. passengers were sent flying. the ferry had just undergone a major overhaul that gave it new engines and a new propulsion system. >>> the former penn state football coach jerry sandusky faces a new court hearing today. his lawyers want a new trial and will argue they didn't have enough time to prepare for the first one because prosecutors gave them a flood of material at the last minute. sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse last june. >>> and now, we turn to an inspiring story of generosity from south florida. airport worker patrick morgan was just doing his job when he found an ipad with $13,000 in cash tucked inside. now, being an honest guy, morgan reported his find to police. as a reward, the ipad's owner gave morgan 60 bucks. but the good deed does not end there. morgan, then, gave that money to a needy co

electri leaking el, the ntsb brought the ballotries to their lab to disassemble them. some have been speculating excess voltage could have started the fire but the ntsb told us today, but examination of the flight recorder from the jalb 787 airplane indicate the batteries did not exceed the designed voltage of 32 volts. these are the charred remains of the battery that started the fire in boston two weeks ago and caused smoke damage to a flight. it's interesting. this 787 dream liner program was actually launched back in 2004 with an order from the airline, but their dream liners and everyone else's dreamliners have been grounded by governments around the globe. experts are saying the only way to get these planes air worthy again is to fix the faulty batteries. >> they can't switch out to other kinds of batteries. that would really add too much weight and they wouldn't be able to produce the amount of power necessary to drive this aircraft. >> reporter: now, boeing refused earlier this week to speculate about what the issue is with the batteries, but they made clear that despite the
by the coast guard and other bodies would made sure they had the information they needed. the ntsb is investigating: agency says it could take 18 months before we know if man or machine was to blame for the accident. funds that are in preserve will be used to pay the $2 million or $3 million but they will seek reimbursement from the owner of the tanker. live in san francisco for abc7 news. >> thank you, katie. city leaders expect a big town out in oakland when the city considers bringing on a controversial police consultant, william bratton, former chief of los angeles and new york city will be consulted to reduce problems in oak. but tempers flared over possible available filing because he favored "stop and frisk" where police can stop anyone they think is suspicious. the oakland city council will take up the meeting tonight. >> in san francisco the use of tasers is the focus of a community meeting. right now the san francisco police department is the only agency in the bay area that does not use stun guns. the chief wants do launch a pilot program to he quinn -- to equip officers
